Come and Play!

Join us for a week, of sun, play, connection and laughter to share in the inspiration and enchantment of Candili.

We welcome families of all shapes and sizes: single parents, married parents, step-parents, partners straight or gay, friends, single people and young people of all ages and all family constellations.

We bring our experience of running family weeks in Findhorn, Scotland, and in Beijing, China.

We want to learn and share with you in this fantastic location in Greece.

We intend to co-create and design the activities of the week with all the participants.

What will we do?

Each group is different and the activities are based on the group preferences. On offer will be circle sharing time, art, parent child yoga, creative writing, games, walks and time in nature.

It is our intention to design the activities of the week with your input so we can be flexible and responsive to the needs of the group. So although there is some structure and routine, there is also lots of room to create the kind of holiday that you want and need for you and your family!

Come for a creative, nourishing, inspiring and fun family holiday !

Beautiful beaches, water sports, yoga, art and creativity classes, music, pony riding, adventurous hiking trails in the magnificent mountains and whatever else you want to bring to Candili, culminating in a hilarious cabaret show on the final night.

Cost € 550 per person - Child discounts.

Includes your beautiful accommodation, breakfast, light lunch and dinner,

except one night at a local taverna and all the fun and games.

“Fantastic holiday for a large multi-generation family gathering”

Reviewed April 2017

We travelled to Candili with a group of 6 families including 17 children under the age of 9 (most under 5), congregating from all over Europe and with different travel expectations. This was quite a challenge for the venue! 

Billy and the team made us all feel incredibly welcome from moment one. More like house guests of a generous and friendly relative than paying visitors. The estate's setting is fantastic, particularly if you like the outdoors and walking (a casual stroll with a 4 year-old or a proper hike). In a very positive way, Billy was always close by to lend a hand, entertain kids and creating adventure for all, like a playful favourite uncle - ranging from a tractor ride, walking tour, kids painting, helping fix things or pushing a ride-on miniature jeep - all included in the experience and no hint of extra hidden cost. We had a great time. 

The setting is very rural, an the ambience rustic and simple. The food is excellent. If you are looking for a 5-star luxury hotel, or flawless facilities and service execution, this is not you place. But if you are looking to relax, let life in a working estate take over and go with the flow in company of new and old friends, I can recommend it.
